Biography

Volga German
Margaretha (Heil) Heppel is a Volga German.
Margaretha (Heil) Heppel has German Roots.

Family #74a in the 1767 Grimm census.

Family #122 in the 1775 Grimm census.

Family #46 in the 1798 Grimm census.

Anna Margaretha Heil was born about 1751, probably in the Darmstadt area of what is now Germany. According to the 1767 Grimm census, her father's name was Johann Heil, and she was an orphan, living with the Herman Schmidt family. Her age is off in later censuses, adding at least 20 years to her age. I am using the age in the records closest to her date of birth, since they tend to be the most accurate.


1767 Grimm Census [1]

Family # 74a
Head of the Household Katharina Margaretha Heil, age 16, orphan
Father Johann Heil
Note Lives with Herman Schmidt family, household #74


Anna Margaretha married Heinrich Heppel, probably a widower, before 1775. At the time of the census, they had no children.


1775 Grimm Census [2]

Family # 122
Head of the Household Heinrich Gepel [Heppel?], age 33
Wife Margarita [sic] Heppel, age 34 [sic] should be 24
Brother-in-Law Johann Philip Mertz, age 24


According to the 1798 census, Heinrich and Anna Margaretha Heppel adopted Johann Heinrich Albrandt into their family, probably because they had no children of their own. At the time of the census, Albrandt was married to Anna Margaretha Vaas (Waag/Faas) and they had two young sons, Johann Heinrich and Johann Georg. Johann Heinrich Albrandt was not an orphan and his parents were still alive for the 1798 census. In fact, the families lived next to each other in Grimm, represented by family #46 and family #47 in the census.


1798 Grimm Census [3]

Family # 46
Head of the Household Heinrich Heppel [?], age 57
Wife Anna Margaretha Heil, age 60 [sic] should be 47

Adopted into the household:

Child #1 Johann Heinrich Albrandt, age 29
Wife of Child #1 Anna Margaretha Vaas [Waag/Faas], age 27
Grandchild #1 Johann Heinrich Albrandt, age 2
Grandchild #2 Johann Georg Albrandt, age 6 months


Neither she nor her husband is listed in the 1834 census. Most likely they had passed away. Had she survived, she would have been 93 years old.
